From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 5): Miller should be nowhere near your lineup until Ben Roethlisberger is back, and even then he's only a marginal option.

Week 5: at San Diego Chargers

All TE vs SD

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Mike Vick had the Steelers in position to win a game, but the team's placekicker blew two game-winning possibilities last week, and the Ravens pulled it out in OT. Vick didn't wow anyone with the 'Michael Vick Experience', but he was a competent game manager who threw 19/26 for 124 yards passing (though some easy throws sailed or hit the turf, as is usual with Vick), one TD and zero interceptions, while adding 9/33/0 rushing. Antonio Brown eked out 5/42/0 receiving on nine targets, while Darrius Heyward-Bey kept Martavis Bryant's seat warm for him with five targets for 4/31/1. We'll see if the return of Bryant this week from suspension can spark something more from the Steelers' passing offense (though they may not need to throw much with Le'Veon Bell picking on the Chargers' sorry rush D). The San Diego pass D allowed 32/41 for 332 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions to Josh McCown last weekend, after coughing up 13/24 for 121 yards passing, with zero TDs and one interception at Minnesota two games ago. This unit has swung wildly over the past two games, as you can see. San Diego is now 10th in the NFL averaging 225.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with seven passing scores handed out vs. three interceptions (tied for 13th in the NFL) and five sacks (tied-28th) generated to date. This is a neutral matchup between so-so units.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs BAL (2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Heath Miller was not involved in the passing attack only receiving two targets. Miller was kept in to block more during this game. Late 3rd quarter on a 2nd a 9, Miller caught a short pass for a 1 yard gain.

2015 Week 3 vs STL (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Heath Miller was once again an option in the red-zone with the short passing game. During the opening series on a 1st and goal from the10 yard line, Miller caught a curl route for an 8 yard gain to the 2 yard line. During the second series on a 2nd and goal from the 8 yard line, Miller drew a pass interference penalty. This penalty set up the Le-Veon Bell touchdown run. On the last play before halftime, Miller caught a 9 yard pass on a 2nd and 19.

2015 Week 2 vs SF (2 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)

Heath Miller was only targeted twice as he was not needed. The Steelers wide receivers were getting easy separation. During the second series of the game on a 2nd and goal from the 3 yard line, Miller caught a quick curl route for a touchdown. After a DeAngelo Williams touchdown on the next drive, Miller caught a TE screen pass to convert the two point conversion. Later in the first half, Miller caught his only other reception for 13 yards.

2015 Week 1 vs NE (11 / 8 / 84 / 0 rec)

Heath Miller was a reliable check down option throughout the game. Roethlisberger looked Miller's way during many key situations. During the first drive, Miller caught a 14 yard pass for a first down. During the second drive on a 3rd and 18, Miller's route was just short of the first down marker as he came away with a 17 yard gain. Over the next few series, Miller caught passes for 9 yards, 6 yards, and 4 yards. Late in the game on a 2nd and 27 from the Pittsburgh 44 yard line, Miller caught his longest pass of the day, an 18 yard gain.

Steelers | Heath Miller likely to be quiet (Thu Oct 1, 12:21 AM) - Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller will face the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Oct. 1, in a Week 4 matchup. Miller is without starting QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and he will face a Ravens defense which has yielded just seven receptions and 30 yards against opposing tight ends through three games.

Our View: Outside of LeVeon Bell and Antonio Brown, we're cool on the Steelers offense until we know more about how Michael Vick is going to look at quarterback.
